LMAO... unless this is high school graduation, there isn't much "Mom" can do about it. I do admire the non-confrontational way of making the announcement though! --------------------- Kind of like telling your parents you have a fatal illness, then when they are at the height of despair, you say, "I'm just kidding - actually, I'm just pregnant." Then, you best run... FAST!!
